The Philharmonic Orchestra: Not The Big Three

Music, Classical and opera
The Philharmonic Orchestra

Time Out says

The Classical era was dominated by three masters: Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn. But there were others, before them and in their time, whose brilliant works are oft neglected. In a one-night-only performance, The Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) hopes to shed light on these lesser-known musical greats by paying homage to some of their most inspiring works.  

The night's repertoire includes pieces from Giovanni Paisiello, C.P.E. Bach, Antonio Salieri, Luigi Cherubini and Franz Schubert. While most of their works are relatively unknown in popular canon, their melodies were much admired by Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn, and each one possesses an impressive oeuvre that has shaped the course of classical music history.
